Heston Blumenthal’s celebrated The Fat Duck is all set to open doors once again on September 29th – nine months after the restaurant including the chef, his staff and cutlery were relocated to Melbourne, Australia.
The outlet in Bray, Berkshire opens doors after an extensive refurbishment and now features a stunning new kitchen and fresh new looks to the dining area. The menu too has been refreshed and now features some classics retired into a “Hall of Fame” section and an online ticketing system, which means reservations are paid for up front.
The new restaurant will focus on experiential dining, bringing to life Blumenthal’s own childhood holiday memories. “It’ll be full of adventure, curiosity, discovery and playfulness that spans a day, from morning to night, breakfast to dreaming and in between… these elements will act as a catalyst to bring your own memories to life.”
The restaurant has already started taking bookings and by the looks of it, the waitlist is going to be months-long already!
